Ben has had some trouble getting his watch repaired. The first watchmaker inspected the watch and gave Ben a long list of spare parts that where needed for him to service the watch this including a new balance, the intermediate wheel for the auto winder and a forth wheel; certainly an expensive affair considering the price of spare parts for an Omega. Ben managed to source the parts but by that time the watchmaker decided not to take on the watch anyway. The watch then went to another watchmaker who had the watch for 3 months without inspecting the watch. When Ben asked to have an inspection the watchmaker did not like the inquiry and sent the watch back. After securing a slot at Watchguy I was asked to inspect the watch straight away if I could fix it nor not. I could feel that the setting lever spring was broken and see there was a missing case clamp and the hairspring had broken off the stud. Cosmetically I could tell the dial had been restored and the plating on the movement at one point had some kind of chemical reaction. All in all nothing looked to frightening and we decided to service the watch.The movement.Movement out of the case and hands removed.I remove the dial, and, as expected, the setting lever spring is broken.I have to remove the third wheel bridge to be able to remove the centre seconds pinion.Removing the train bridge reveals the gear train.Old mainspring.After cleaning all the parts I manage to re-pin the hairspring onto the stud.I fit a new mainspring that Ben also had supplied.The gear train is coming back in to the movementI find the early 500 movements are a little trickier than the later 550 movements due to the two wheels on the third wheel.As I put the balance in the movement starts straight up.After a considerable amount of adjusting the watch preforms amazingly well.New generic setting lever spring in place.Dial and hands back on the movement.Movement back in the case.Auto winder mechanism back together. I would show a photo of the auto winder and rotor back in place but due to a blurry photo I decided to let you use your imagination;)I think that the watch turned out rather good in the end. Ironically I did not use any of the spare parts besides the mainspring. I advice Ben to hold on to the spares as Omega parts will just get harder and harder to source now that Swatch Group is closing the tap on spare parts.
